Playing with crimp weave

Crimp weave 10/2 & sewing

This sample of crimp weave was woven on warp left after weaving a scarf. It’s narrow since the original scarf was only 7 inches wide. The warp is a 10/2 Tencel and weft a polyester sewing thread. This gives a lovely hand. Note to self when setting up to weave future scarf warp width should be at least 15 inches in reed.

The towels which were on the loom are off and need to be hemmed. This was the warp I showed in a previous post “Spring Has Sprung“.  I’ll post the variety of designs I wove when the handwork is finished. My time lately has been spent sewing handwoven fabric into a garment for the upcoming Contemporary Handweavers of Texas conference in June. With a sigh of relief it will go to the post office tomorrow. There will be pictures to share after the conference. So what to put on the loom next?

We had a little too much rain a week ago. The lake flooded in the park where I walk. Later that day the water had receded and the grounds cleaned up. Other areas near continue to have flooding a week later. More rain is in the forecast here. With any luck it will come in light sprinkles. Today was a beautiful sunny day, letting us relax with a swim in the pool.

  1. Love your creative mind! Good luck with CHT show! Yes, flooding has been disastrous. Here in CO we are pounded with rain, tornadoes & hail! Too much, too often. The trees are bare–just when they had new growth. Mother Nature works her wonders!
